Hour 2: Neal Shusterman
Award-winning New York Times bestselling author Neal Shusterman joins the show during the second hour to discuss the fourth book in The Unwind Dystology series, UnDivided.
Shusterman’s Unwind Dystology series centers around teenagers who are fighting the order to be unwound, which means that unwanted people between the ages of 13 and 18 can have their body parts removed and harvested to be used in other people. In this sense, people who are unwound never really “die,” as their parts continue to live on in other people. In the books, this practice has become the basis of society and a big profit maker for big business, while a growing number of people are against this lifestyle for a number of reasons.
In the latest book, UnDivided, a teenager named Cam has been created completely from the parts of unwound teens, making an entirely new person, The company that created Cam, Proactive Citizenry, wants to mass produce these types of people for military purposes. In addition, this group has been suppressing technology that could make unwinding completely unnecessary. Meanwhile, another group made up of unwanted youths, known as “storked teens,” are growing more powerful. And if they have their way, they’ll burn the harvest camps and put every adult in them before a firing squad, which would force the country into another devastating civil war.
Tonight, Shusterman will discuss topics including what this series Unwind is about, where he got the idea of harvesting organs from teens for use in other people, the implications of such a practice on our world, and how close we are to this type of technology.
Neal Shusterman is the New York Times bestselling author of more than 30 award-winning books for children, teens, and adults, including The Unwind Dystology, The Skinjacker trilogy, Downsiders, and The Schwa Was Here, which won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award for fiction. Several of his books are now in development as major motion pictures.

Hour 3: (Rebroadcast) Dr. Daniel Gottlieb
Trusted psychologist, therapist, lecturer, and award-winning radio host Dr. Daniel Gottlieb joins the show during the final hour to discuss his book, The Wisdom We’re Born With: Restoring Our Faith in Ourselves.
What if the things you imagine will make you happy won’t—if what you really need is not what you think you need? These days it seems like most people suffer from living a “too-hurried life.” We get so busy with superficial things we don’t take time to truly experience the awe of life, like children naturally do. Even though we’re born with the ability to experience joy, love, compassion, trust and, yes, especially awe, life intervenes. So how do we get from want we HAVE to want we WANT…peace, joy, and love?
With his unique wisdom, openness, and honesty, Dr. Daniel Gottlieb will remind us all tonight that we’re not alone in our struggles. He offers a path back to a perspective that every infant intuitively understands, but one that is often lost on the road to adulthood. He’ll offer his thoughts on breaking patterns and habits, calming the unquiet mind, living in the moment, and above all, the importance of love.
Daniel Gottlieb, a practicing psychologist and family therapist, is the host of Voices in the Family on WHYY, Philadelphia’s National Public Radio affiliate. From 1993 until 2008, he wrote a highly regarded column for the Philadelphia Inquirer called Inside Out, reflecting his perspective on world events and the ways we experience them.

A columnist and radio host, Gottlieb also lectures locally and nationally on topics related to personal and social well-being, helping individuals and families find a greater sense of fulfillment and community.
